AFG Venture Group is a joint venture between two leading corporate advisory firms. Asean Focus Group (AFG) was established in the early 1990s by Peter Church, Michael Fay and Glen Robinson specialising in advising Australian and international companies expanding into the markets of South East Asia and India. Venture Group (VG) was set up in 1996 by a financial professional and quickly established itself through the reputation of its founder Lindley Edwards and became a leading Australian mid-market corporate advisory firm.
AFG had always been interested in developing at some stage an Australian focused business and in the same way VG had always been interested in developing an Asian business. There was clear synergy between the two groups which led to them merging their two businesses in 2009.
